MRIGAYURVEDA – THE ROAD TO ONE HEALTH

(GAF-ISESP)

 

DEC 4, 2023

Ayurveda and Siddha encompass the oldest systems of medicine regarding human, animal and plant health care and wellness. “One Health is the collaborative efforts of multiple disciplines working locally and globally to attain optimal health for people, animals, plants, soil and the environment.” Codified veterinary knowledge exists in medical texts and manuscripts on various aspects of veterinary care. It has a documented history of around 5000 years. The veterinary and animal husbandry practices are mentioned in Rigveda, Atharvaveda and many ancient texts in different regions of India. Manuscripts on Asvasatra (1800 BCE), Hastyayurveda (1000 BCE), Asva Vaidyaka, Garuda Purana, Asvayur Veda Sarasindu, Sahadeva Pasu Vaidya Sastramu (Telugu), Mattu Vaidya Bodhini, Mattuvagadam (Tamil), Matsyapurana, Garuda Purana, Agni Purana, Brahmanandapurana, Lingapuranah and Arthasatra, are available in India. India is the world’s largest milk-producing country, and livestock keeping is a livelihood occupation for millions of farmers. Excessive and indiscriminate use of antibiotics to manage infectious diseases in animals, humans and crop plants has created antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Today, AMR is a worldwide problem affecting human, animal and environmental health. As antibiotics find their way through the food chain, one of the urgent needs is to reduce the use of antibiotics in healthcare management. In this context, traditional knowledge of using plant-based ethno-veterinary practices (EVP) /Mrigayurveda is essential to reduce antibiotics and other chemicals in veterinary health care. Therefore, ethnoveterinary methods have a high priority to minimize drug residues in foods of animal origin.
